What You Can Expect

Elafiti Islands Cruise from Dubrovnik

Sail around the gorgeous Elafiti Islands of Croatia!

Explore the beautiful islands off the coast of Croatia by sailboat – a replica of a historical galleon – and experience breathtaking views of the Dubrovnik region. Discover three of the most beautiful of the islands, Koločep, Lopud and Šipan, and learn about the history of each place, as your boat makes its way from Dubrovnik through the azure blue Adriatic Sea. The Elafiti Islands, reportedly an ancient Greek word for ‘deer,’ was an old hunting grounds for the Greeks. 

Today they are a bucolic archipelago, studding with old sleepy villages and a verdant countryside. Dock the boat at each island and explore the places on your own. Walk through citrus and olive groves, diminutive villages with centuries-old manor houses and churches right on the sea. 

Abut midway through the adventure, sit down on the island of Šipan to a typical Croatian lunch. Indulge in grilled seafood and sip some locally made wine while a band performs traditional Dalmatian folk music for you. 

Then head back to Dubrovnik and get dropped off at your hotel.

Great day, very well organised. We had to change the day of our trip and this was not a problem even though it was peak time. We were picked up and returned to our hotel which made it a lot easier. The musicians on the boat were great and very entertaining. It was good to get out on the water and see some of the islands. The staff were very helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this trip.

The galleon, fresh fish lunch on board, and the 3 islands we visited were awesome. I only wish when we boarded there would have been a brochure for us with some more in-depth information about galleons. Without our guide's brief history lessons at each island, the trip would have been far less interesting. We had just the right amount of time to explore each island. The trip was definitely worth the amount of money charged. We were on the last cruise of the season so it is was almost filled to capacity.

Although we were told the family on Sipan did not allow visitors inside, the door was open and I walked in. I was turned away as a group of some 20 people were on a private tour. Not sure how they could tour and we could not. Perhaps Viator/local tour company could check further. Someone is getting tours.

Amazing experience! Lopud was my favourite island. Definitely go to Sanj beach in Lopud, it is worth the trek.

Such a fantastic day out. Elite tours really are great. We did the Game of Thrones walking tour with them and we got the same guide! She was fantastic on both tours. This tour is as relaxed or as involved as you want. If you don't like fish I don't, I know it's a waste in Croatia, but still, you can request a vegetarian meal which was really nice. I totally recommend going to the sandy beach on the final island by taking a golf cart taxi for around 2 return. Great fun. Would totally do it again.

Fantastic and unique way to enjoy the islands off Dubrovnik! Get a seat at the stern rear of the boat for the best enjoyment of views and waves :- everything is taken care of, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy. Lunch with water and white wine is included, but you can also purchase additional drinks as you wish. You get about an hour at the first two islands which is just enough time to explore their main sites or laze on their beaches. About 3 hours is spent on the last time, which is perfect for soaking in the rays, having an ice-cream it's straight after lunch, so perfect time for dessert, exploring and enjoying the water. I really enjoyed this short cruise.

Excellent day trip with amazing landscapes and seascapes. The galleon adds a bit of spices to the trip, which is, anyway, of a very good level. The food was not something special, just O.K. All in all a very pleasant day.
